Hogan Nonprofit Business Plan Competition 2020
HOGAN / AMERICAN SAVINGS BANK NONPROFIT BUSINESS PLAN COMPETITION - 2020
Chaminade University's Hogan Entrepreneurial Program and the American Savings Bank are once again conducting a Business Plan Competition exclusively for the nonprofit sector.
We are doing this in light of the excellent response to our previous nonprofit competitions, and our desire to involve our students in programs that contribute to the economic and social well-being of Hawai'i.
Thanks to generous support from American Savings Bank, we are able to provide significant awards of cash.

We look forward to announcing the winners of this ninth Nonprofit Business Plan Competition on April 22, at 10:00am in Chaminade's Mystical Rose Oratory.
Supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in Hawaii's nonprofit sector is vital to bolstering the important, community-focused work they do.
That's why the Hogan Entrepreneurial Program at Chaminade University is once again honored to partner with American Savings Bank for the Nonprofit Business Plan Competition.
The annual competition is open to nonprofits seeking to start new ventures that will benefit society. It aims to stimulate public interest and support in nonprofit organizations--and encourage excellence and innovation in socially-motivated entrepreneurs.
Winners will be awarded unrestricted cash prizes to help fund their proposals.
Applicants are evaluated based on how their proposals align with the Hogan Program's mission of "doing social things that make business sense and doing business things that make social sense."
We look forward to reviewing a flurry of innovative business plans in this cycle's competition. If you don't plan to apply this year, please consider sharing information about the competition with colleagues and fellow community leaders.
Thank you for all you do for the community every day, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

"This competition is especially important in light of recent news that many Hawai'i nonprofits have been scaling back or shutting down operations due to cuts in funding. It is a tough time for nonprofits, and it seems like the pool of grant money is drying up," said Hogan Program director, John Webster, PhD. "But thanks to our generous contributors, the Hogan Entrepreneurial Program will be looking for new programs that best embody its mission of 'doing social things that make business sense, as it conducts its 5th Non-Profit Business Plan Competition."

ABOUT HOGAN FAMILY FOUNDATION
This program is designed to equip students to hit the ground running when they leave Chaminade, with new skills, extensive connections, and the mind set to start new things wherever their careers may lead them.
Contributing to Society
Open to all majors and undergraduates as well as graduate students, (not just business majors,) we recognize that any graduate has the potential to start something new. New ideas that contribute to society and the well-being of communities benefit everyone, but also can make for successful, thriving businesses. This is the variety of entrepreneurial spirit we cultivate in our program. Our motto is "Doing business things that make social sense. Doing social things that make business sense."
Learning the Life and Culture of the Entrepreneur
In this program, students learn first-hand from experienced Hawai'i business leaders and entrepreneurs about the business of getting a new idea up and running. This involves:
- Academic coursework
- Carefully chosen mentorships and internships with seasoned business leaders
- Attendance at our weekly lecture series
- Broadening horizons by study trips to other locales, such as our trips to China
- Broadening perspectives, contributing to the community and honing people skills through community service
- An opportunity to participate in planning an actual venture with our non-profit business plan competition
The Hogan Program is a 1 year or 2 year certificate program.
"Funded by generous contributions from The Hogan Family Foundation, this is a practical program that provides in-depth learning through contact with Hawaii's entrepreneurs. The small class size is designed to provide careful nurturing. We aim to prepare students to start and do new things--wherever their careers may lead them." -- Dr. John Webster
